Kayak excursion
Just got my shore excursion book today, can you tell?
Seriously though, the kayak thing on St. Kitts sounds really neat & it's certainly someting I've never done before, but just how strenuous is it? By nature my husband & I are couch potatoes, but we have started going to the gym to work out-really want to wear the same formal & swimsuits as last year . . .
AAll info appreciated- Happy Sailing to all- web

RE: Kayak excursion

The St. Kitts Island Tour is quite interesting, and it affords some spectacular views, especially from the fort (which, BTW, is one of the more impressive forts of that era that I have seen). On the other hand, I really had hoped to take the Sailaway to Nevis but it was sold out....

BTW, there's a "Caribbean" message board on the "Ports of Call" section where you will find a lot more information about the various ports of call in the Caribbean.

RE: Kayak excursion
I have the same question as you have only I thought the kayak was on Barbados. Two years ago we did the kayak thing on St. Thomas and it was a hoot. The kayaks are unsinkable, floaters for two persons. We paddled out across the mangrove area to a secluded beach where we snorkled and had some refreshments (no booze ... no way to get you back if you drink too much!) I am almost 62 and my wife is 60. She walks 6 miles a day. I do the sam some days although not as regularly. Unless there is a lot of open ocean paddling you shouldn't have any trouble. Be sure to drink a lot of water as it's easy to get dehydrated. Also wear loose fitting long sleeved shirt and pants. The sun can be brutal when you sit in one of these with your legs stretched out.

We signed up for the morning kayak and afternoon snorkle on Barbados. Will report how it goes.
